The casting of an actress as popular as Jodie Foster represents a new “cut” for HBO, which changed teams each season to better surprise the public. Each time, it was a 5-star cast: Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson played the first investigators, in 2014, then Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams, Vince Vaughn and Taylor Kitsch signed for season 2, in 2015, and a third story was carried by Mahershala Ali and Stephen Dorff, in 2019. Since its creation, True Detective has been nominated for 23 Emmy Awards, recalls Variety. The series has already won five.
